5.平和か正義か?
ウジャン殺害事件が難しいのは,それが内戦としての人民戦争の中で,交戦中の一方の勢力たるマオイストの作戦の一環と見られる余地が全くないとは言い切れないからである。

人民戦争終結のための「包括和平協定」(2006年)には,戦時の諸事件は「真実和解委員会(TRC)」等の和平機関を設置し,そこで解決を図るとの取り決めもある。マオイスト側は,党幹部もYCLなどの傘下諸組織も,ウジャン殺害事件は人民戦争中のスパイ絡みの「政治的な事件」だから,TRCで解決されるべきだと繰り返し主張してきた。

それなのに,もしウジャン殺害事件が戦後,通常の裁判所で「刑事犯罪」として裁かれ処罰されることになれば,他の同様の行為も「刑事犯罪」となり,責任追及は他の党幹部にも及ぶ恐れがある。マオイストとしては,これはどうしても未然に防止しなければならない事態である。

他方,被害者側からすれば,ウジャン殺害は異カースト間結婚に絡む殺人であり,殺人事件として裁かれ処罰されるべきだし,たとえ仮に人民戦争の一環だとしても,ウジャン殺害は国際法が禁止する人道に反する虐殺行為であり,戦争犯罪として裁かれ処罰されるべきだ,と主張している。内外の人権諸団体は,この観点からウジャン側を一貫して強力に支援している。ウジャン側のこの主張も,もっともである。

ウジャン殺害事件は,理念的には,平和と正義の相克の問題である。平和と正義は,同時に実現されるのであれば,それが理想である。が,現実には,いくらそれを願い努力しても,そうならない場合が少なくない。

平和のため正義を,正義のために平和を,ある程度断念せざるをえない場合が,現実には少なくない。悲しく苦しく無念な事態だが,不完全な人間の業であり宿命として観念せざるを得ないのではないだろうか。
